Preschool Board Books - No No Yes Yes

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Infants and toddlers explore their world daily. Along the way they discover the correct manner to do things. Leslie Patricelli writes No No Yes Yes to help reinforce the correct way to do things.

Leslie Patricelliís board book shows the infant and toddler that drawing on the wall is incorrect behavior. Crayons and markers are for writing on paper. The words no no are on the page showing incorrect behavior. The words yes yes are on the page depicting good behavior. As the child and parent turn the page, an infant is digging in the nose. No no! The infant blows her nose on a tissue. Yes yes!

Ms. Patricelliís infant in the pictures wears only a diaper and a wide smile. It is a costume familiar to the young. The drawings are of the infant/toddler in familiar situations. The little one is eating the dogís food. She is pulling the catís tail. Objects are placed in the toilet. They hit the younger sibling on the head. After each no no page, a yes yes page follows with the correct behavior.

Leslie Patricelliís illustrations are simple. A pinkish-brown infant wears a smile and diaper. Infants and toddlers can easily focus on the words written in large black type. The pallette contains the eight basic colors. In fact, the background on each page is a solid color. This is perfect for the child to learn colors.

Twenty pages have different common misbehavior which parents and care givers will recognize. Yes Yes No No allows the child and adult to discuss them. On the last two pages, Leslie Patricelli has five more problem areas. Parent and child will recognize unrolling the toilet paper, squeezing the toothpaste tube, drawing with mommyís lipstick, etc. Yet, Patricelli shows more Yes Yes things, also.

The No No Yes Yes board book is perfect for the child learning how to navigate this new world. She is learning how things are done from her first teachers, parents and care givers. Use the delightful board book to share these important safety tips with infants and toddlers.

Remember children are learning about books, also. Show them how to hold a book. Teach them to turn one page at a time. Use your finger to move left to right as they read each word. Soon children will learn to start at the left and read to the right. These are early steps to producing a good reader.

Yummy Yucky is a fun way to convey to a child certain things are yummy to eat while others are yucky to eat.
